    Image of fort's sandstone buildings with a U.S. flag flying from the flag pole.
    View of Fort Larned from the southeast with a U.S. flag flying on the flag pole. The Army usually flew a 20 by 38 foot garrison flag. This large flag flown at frontier army posts could be seen for miles and offered travelers on the trail the comfort of knowing the U.S. Army was near.
